    Quick rant thread.

    Both went through - in fact there were three tax cuts. Labour did a tax cut in 2008 when they panicked they would lose the election, which National voted in favour of and promised not to undue if they won the election. Then when National became government they put their first tax cut through in 2009, and then the big one in 2010.
  3. Why do these opportunities always arise when I'm broke? Was there any new parts there, like gasket sets, water pumps etc?
  4. Its no suprise they are going under - their parts were way overpriced.

    Is your current one 3.15? If so, should be a nice upgrade.

    H1 LED Conversion Kits?

    Fwiw, I upgraded my stock H7 halogens to the top rated H7 halogens which were Philips racing vision +150% and noticed very little difference. Imo for a decent upgrade you will need led or hid. I will be curious to see the results you get.

    M43 engine

  11. I know some of the m62 engines had remote oil filter housings so that would provide you with the housing and hoses, and then you would have to fabricate the block off plate. Hopefully thats helpful. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=DN52-EUR-12-2000-E39-BMW-540i&diagId=11_1591

    M43 engine

    Want to buy a M43B18 engine to replace an overheated one. Has anybody got one?
  13. Makes you wonder why someone would remove the engine and then just sell the car? Could be a good money maker for someone with the cashflow.

    My E46 V12 6speed swap

    What was the cost for porting and polishing the heads, and what is the claimed power gains?
